Verdict

Polterheist is a sufficiently entertaining slot game with a fun theme, quirky graphics and special features that gives the game plenty of variety. The game will especially appeal to players who like spooky slots and especially the spooky slots of a quirky nature. Despite its relatively high volatility rate this game pays out small wins regularly, but these wins are often smaller than your bet. In addition to the high volatility rate Polterheist has a high minimum bet of £0.50. For this reason, this slot game might be less suitable for smaller and more casual players. Gamblers with a bigger bankroll, who like to play with higher risk have the chance to claim significant rewards especially if they have the patience to wait for a big win.
